On one of our days in NYC we went on a tour of indie bookshops with cats. I know it sounds odd, but it was a very Remy way to spend a day in a new city.
In Alabaster Books (which is around the corner from The Strand and doesn’t appear to have a website), this sweetie came right up to me for lovin’. It was obvious that she’d recently had surgery and when we asked the guy behind the counter, he explained that she’d just had her stitches removed that morning–from surgery to amputate one of her hind legs due to cancer. Of course I loved that story and I loved that kitty. And I added a few pounds to my suitcase with purchases from Alabaster. :)
